Foundation Problem Signs in Lynchburg

Foundation damage can be very complex. While some telltale problem signs are easily visible – including wall cracks, bowing basement walls, and uneven floors – others can go under the radar and be connected to other damage. These include sticking windows and doors, drywall nail pops, cracking and leaning chimneys, and foundation settlement. When in doubt, reach out to your local foundation repair specialists at JES for a complete foundation inspection to uncover what’s really going on with your Lynchburg home. 

Foundation Wall Cracks - Horizontal - These types of cracks are caused by pressure and can take the form of hydrostatic pressure or expansive soils. Water or soil pushes against your foundation walls, creating areas of weakness. Over time you'll start to notice horizontal cracks and eventually bowed walls.

Bowing Walls

Bowed basement walls are caused by too much pressure pushing against your basement walls, and are a serious foundation concern.

Nail Pops

Drywall Nail Pops

If your foundation becomes damaged, the walls in your home may begin to shift. This can cause nails to pop out of wall studs and put holes in your drywall.

Sinking Foundation

Ground sinking near your home’s foundation indicates that you have a serious foundation problem.

Causes of Foundation Damage in Lynchburg

There could be numerous causes behind the foundation problems your Lynchburg home is experiencing. While it’s rare for construction issues to be sources, they do happen. The most common causes, however, are rooted in the soil. Situated in south central Virginia, Lynchburg has a combination of sandy loam and clay loam soil. It’s easy for these soils to become unstable, especially with an average of 42 inches of rainfall per year. Unstable, expansive, wet soil contributes to phenomena including the clay bowl effect and hydrostatic pressure that lead to cracking, bowing, leaking foundations. 

Cracked brick

Deep Foundations

Deep foundations have to support the entire structure of the home, as well as combat the immense pressure applied by the surrounding soil. Weather can also cause this pressure to change and shift, as well as alter the stability of the soil supporting the basement foundation.

Bowed Basement-Wall

Expansive Soil

The soils around your foundation can put a lot of pressure on your foundation walls!

Drought

Severe drought can be the downfall of your Virginia or Maryland foundation, causing differential settlement and prepping the stage for water problems down the line. JES is here to help.

Common Foundation Repair Solutions in Lynchburg

Depending on your foundation type, the extent of damage, and other factors, your Lynchburg home can benefit from any number of foundation repair solutions. If your home is settling, piering systems – helical piers, push piers, or slab piers – can be used to stabilize and help lift the foundation.
